Are you looking for a snuggle buddy? Then look no further, Oakley, ARPH # 14424, would love to become your new best friend. This handsome blue eyed, blue merle boy is 3.5 years old (1/17/19). Weighing in at 43 pounds he is just the right size for snuggling and loving. Oakley is a more timid boy and would do best in a quiet home with someone who is home most of the day. He is a true velcro Aussie who loves to follow his person around so we are looking for an owner who appreciates that quality. He gets so excited when his human comes home that he happily greets with a toy in his mouth. A toy basket near the front door would make him very happy. He is not a fan of the crate, fortunately while in rescue he has not been destructive while left alone and also has not had any housebreaking accidents. Oakley was raised with a cat and does not show interest in chasing so may not mind having a kitty friend as a housemate. He has been fostered with other dogs, but does not show any interest in playing with them so would be very happy being someone’s one and only. He is a moderate energy level so several walks a day and play in a fenced yard should be enough to keep him satisfied. Yes, a physical fence is required. To help build his confidence we are seeking a home that plans on a training class and taking him on lots of new excursions. Due to his sensitive nature he will not be placed in a home with a lot of people coming and going. A home with previous herding dog experience is strongly preferred. Oakley is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. He was turned into rescue as his owner was experiencing financial difficulties. He is being fostered in central Connecticut. If you have an approved application please contact Pat.
